we have a windows 2003 domain controller and separate windows 2003 mail server running exchange 2007 sp1. Having just completed installing a san/ucc cert and enabling forms based authentication for owa clients are being prompted for user name and password when they start outlook 2007. owa is working well and autodiscover test from outlook client passes all tests perfectly.  i have checked the "more" settings on the exchange email account and it is not set to ask for credentials.
any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks

If you're using a proxy or ISA as a proxy, this article might lead you to the direction of solving the pop-ups:

To further ask, are you using a Self - signed certificate, or one issued from an authority?

i am using a ucc cert from godaddy with all the relevant domain /server names to copy with both internal and external users. autodiscover.domain.com is registered with external dns. we are not using a proxy.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

In IIS do you have integrated windows authentication checked, as well as on the 2007 HUB server?

Sorry for delay but on GMT!
Checked the windows authenication on IIS and all appears to work! Great! Just one question ( points are forgone conclusion!) Should windows authentication AND Basic be ticked and should default domain details nedd to be filled in?

Thanks

I don't think it makes that much of a difference. I have them checked. As long as Outlook works, and OWA works, and is secured by SSL you're fine. :)
